James Caan is offering advice to budding entrepreneurs via his new Business Secrets app
Caan is a well-known supporter of young entrepreneurs and start-up businesses, and has designed his app - which is free to download from the iTunes App Store - to inspire and advise self-starters on their way up the ladder.
“There are five million small businesses in the UK employing 13.7 million people, but they will have to grow and employ many more if we are to climb out of the financial downturn,” he says.
“Start-ups will have to be a major growth area. Young businesses are much more nimble and grow quicker than established companies.
“It’s where there’s real potential to create new jobs.”
The app provides Caan’s advice on issues such as hiring staff, managing finances, marketing and leadership skills.
It also includes a free audiobook version of his autobiography.
